PROFESSIONAL DOCUMENT

There is nothing stopping you from lodging a submission for or against a development application in Queensland, however our town planners know what decision makers are looking for.

Time vs Money

The average submission document takes 1/2-2 days for a professional to prepare. How long would it take you? Please note a professionally prepared submission is not a pre-requisite in Queensland legislation.

Online service

Submission Studio is a 100% online service. We have email and a phone number for account enquiries. Why, online only? Our service is to draft submission documents. Phone discussions can be therapeutic but are not efficient.

education

You are welcome to send us questions about the Queensland planning system, your rights and whether a development proposal is consistent with a local planning scheme or not.

Frequently asked questions

How fast can you provide the draft submission?

On average it takes 3 to 7 business days to draft a submission document. This is dependant on our workload and the number of documents our town planners need to review. If you have a submission deadline, please email us in the first instance. 

What if there is a conflict of interest?

Submission Studio is run by town planners with the aim of advocating, education and assisting the public to understand Queensland planning processes and their rights. Where there is a conflict of interest we will advise you early on. 

Can you take us to the Planning and Environment Court

We can provide you advice on how the court system works and whether you have a case worth filing an appeal for. We cannot however take you through the court system as Submission Studio is an online service only. Generally, you will require a Planning and Environment solicitor, not a town planner. 

How did Submission Studio come about?

Town planners are pro development and our fees are paid by property owners and developers. We could however see a growing need from the public with assistance on understanding the Queensland planning legislation which was not adequately being filled by local government. 

Can I call you?

Please do not call us unless you have an account issue or alternatively please ask us to call you. Whilst we are here to support and educate, we are practising town planners, not therapists. We 100% can review documents and prepare submissions without ever seeing or talking to you… 2019 baby!
